Russia has donated 352 tons of sunflower oil enriched with vitamins and minerals to Sri Lanka as part of its contribution to the World Food Programme (WFP).
Speaking at the handover of the donation, Russian ambassador Levan Dzhagaryan said this marks a truly historic moment in the development of Russia–Sri Lanka ties.
One of the purposes of the Russian foreign policy is to promote international cooperation in solving economic, social, cultural, and humanitarian problems, he said.
“In terms of these aspects, the Russian Federation never stays on the sidelines. Despite all the challenges faced by our country, we will continue supporting our friendly states. Keep moving forward! Great things are ahead,” the ambassador added.
